Will we have a love potion soon?

» Posted on Apr 11, 2009 in Blog | 3 comments

I read an article in AARP Bulletin last month talking about a professor of neuroscience, Larry Young, at Emory University exploring developing a drug that works on our brain to release brain hormones that give us a “warm feeling.” In the article the author wondered if there would be a day when we could take a love pill to help us as the article said, “make people have the impulse and the desire to move closer to one another.” It’s interesting to note that our brain’s chemistry does change in certain activities associated with love (the article gave the examples of breast feeding and sex). So do you think one day we’ll see a love potion on the shelf to tap into those changes that occur in us when we see someone we love?


  1. Just because we can do something, doesn’t mean we should. People don’t seem to want to think about the consequences of their actions. Have a great day. Happy Easter.

  2. If we do, I hope they place ethics, morals and God behind their science!
    Thanks and have a wonderful Easter.

  3. I would love to win a book if you have a contest into which I can win a book, please add me. I am a retired semi disables 66 year old lady and I love to read, have all my life.
    May God bless you.
